Septic tank/sump pump problems

I ah aving septic tank sump pump problems, primarily due to excess rain here. My 500 (estimate) gallon septic tank has a crack in it. I plan on replacing it but it will not be real soon. A drain leads from the tank to a sump pump basin with is about 30 to 40 gallons. IT has a 1/2 hp pump and it pumps to a drain system about 40 to 50 feet away.

'Right now, my questions are:

1 How big of a sump pump basin do I need.

2 what hp pump do I need.

What I have had has worked fine but I think now, for some reason, I cannot pump into the septic drain system. It is an above ground system. When it is working, I can hear the water entering the drain pit. I don't think it is working now.

Thanks in advance.
